Horse and carriage..... - Schloss Neuschwanstein

Horse and carriage.....

Some options.......

To get from Hohenschwangau to Neuschwanstein, there are a number of options.
First option of course, is to walk. According to those in the know, it takes 30minutes to walk there and the way I look at it is, that if you are fit enough to walk it, you are fit enough to do it in 30 minutes.
There is, for the want of a better description, a rickety old bus which puts me in mind of a retired WWII troop carrier. The fare is 1.80 euro each way. Finally, there is the horse and carriage for 6 euro up and 3 euro down. No matter which option you choose, you will still have a good walk to the castle entrance. I used the troop carrier going up and the horse and carriage coming down. Apparently for once in my l,ife I made a good choice because the troop carrier leaves you at a spot where it is 85% downhill walk and 15% uphill walk to the entrance. If you continue on past the castle on the downhill road, you will come across the horse and carriage stop which is about 400-500 metres (just guessing) downhill from the top.

Bus station at Fuessen..... - Schloss Neuschwanstein

Bus station at Fuessen.....

Transport from Fuessen.....

Buses leave the Busbahnhof right outside the Train Station in Fuessen approximately every hour. Take bus #73 direction Steingaden or bus #78 direction Schwangau or Castles. 1.80 euro each way but free if you have a Bayern (Laender) ticket. When you get off the bus at Hohenschwangau you need to walk 100 metres uphill to buy your ticket for the castles (follow the signs).
